Even though Paris is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world, it is filled with quite mysterious places making Dark Tourism fans more than happy. If you are fascinated by medicine or you are part of those sad of the closure of the Musée Dupuytren that displayed fascinated anatomic pathologies, there is still one fascinated place devoted to the history of medicine. This is Hôpital Saint-Louis Musée des Moulages.
This quirky and secret museum in Paris gathers a gigantic collection of over 4,800 medical wax figures presenting moldings of dermatological diseases from the 19th century. It is so exceptional that is has been listed as historic monument in 1992. This one-of-its-kind museum welcomes the many professionals in the healthcare sector, as well as curious people who are not faint of heart. You heard us, this is NOT for the faint of heart.
Careful though, to discover the Musée des Moulages, you must fix an appointment. It is also banned to people under 12. The admission is free of charge for the AP-HP staff, but average visitors will have to pay €7 (full rate) or €4 (students) to visit it.
